1760 December 1 (Monday). I rode to Mr. Daniel Wheelers to engage Nero for my son Baldwin. Returned home. At Eve the Committee met here, viz. Mr. Whipple, Phinehas Hardy, Daniel Forbush, and Ebenezer Maynard (Capt. Wood was gone out of Town) to enquire into what Deficiencys there have been unpaid. And I gave ‘em such Account as they well accepted. N.B. Mr. Ebenezer Maynard paid me the full of his Rate for last year — and I gave him a Receipt in full (of all that he was appointed to collect for me for the year past, viz. 66£ 13.4). Hephzibah Maynard came, and lodges here. N.B. Mrs. P__________ has had So much pain, that She is almost ready to threaten we shall be alarmed very Soon.
